01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Yeah still wondering who doesn't have the draw vote down. Egypt?
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: My guess is Egypt or Russia - mine is submitted.
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: I'll take my measly one point lol
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: I have the draw vote
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: France any chance at peace between us? I take back austria, you get back Switzerland? I think we are the only really interesting thing happening on the board aside from england eliminating russia and spain slowly pushing into Egypt so if we can form a healthy stalemate, whoever’s holding out the draw will realize there’s nothing to be gained by waiting.
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Acceptable on the condition that you also withdraw back from Alsace.
01 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Agreed
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Spain, you won’t be making any more ground on me. Your mission is pointless
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Shoot I miscalculated that one Egypt, good take of Rostov
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Thanks. Just so everyone knows, my draw vote will go down until i stop gaining ground on Ukraine quickly.
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: TL;DR - Egypt is the reason we are stuck playing this out :P
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: I’m not drawing till Turkey and Russia are gone at least. What’s the point of an 8-way draw?
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Boo :P
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Doesn’t really matter with sum of squares, but it’s an easy enough thing to accomplish.
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: It’s not about coins, it’s the principle of thing. Drawing with only two players knocked out of a 10 player game? Italy and Poland deserve better than that
02 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Haha fair enough.
03 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: I agree with that.
03 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: I tried to stay alive. England wasn't willing to help out >.>
03 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 2003: Ukraine, maybe we can negotiate some sore of deal to end this game. I am happy to just take sev and be done. What are your thoughts?
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Honestly to end this game, I am good with that. And fair point Britain
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Egypt if I support you into Sev will you not hit Kharkov? Would love a support into take Gorky one last time (and put me in the positive) too from either Britain or Egypt, but might be asking too much
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: I see Egypt gunning into Ukraine pretty hard soon...
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Not that I can stop it, but Egypt has no reason to play nice anymore. No one can stop him in the east since everyone is bogged down in the west.
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: This is partially true yes, I will need some support from the Western powers to hold up against Egypt unless he/ she be so kind as to work together
03 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: If I support you into Gorky won’t Russia take Moscow? How about I support you to Sev and you support me to Gorky? (That way Volga is gone)
04 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Done
04 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Western Black Sea into Sev if you please
04 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 2004: Britain, you not giving up Gorky is making it harder. Let me and Ukraine get it and this game will be over.
04 Sep 20 UTC I think I should have Gorky
04 Sep 20 UTC based on what?
04 Sep 20 UTC Personally I think ukraine should get gorky. They’ve done most of the work of preventing any chance of an egyptian solo. And I think their diplomatic skills are one of the key reasons most if has have been keeping the peace. But of course my draw vote stays up no matter who takes it.
04 Sep 20 UTC Aw shucks, thanks Germany :). I honestly don't care, I'm surprised I made it this far. EIther way, sombody take Gorky and let's draw this before France and Germany tear each other apart and Egypt starts the solo work again haha
04 Sep 20 UTC My support from Volga to Gorky is ordered Egypt
04 Sep 20 UTC Preventing an Egyptian solo is why I should get Gorky
04 Sep 20 UTC Russia, I’ll support you to Moscow.
04 Sep 20 UTC You can prevent an Egyptian solo by drawing now.
04 Sep 20 UTC Britain, were you not the one saying that you wanted russia and turkey dead? I agree with you but if you really wanted that then you would let it happen.
04 Sep 20 UTC Why is everyone so eager to draw? Don’t you like playing the game?
05 Sep 20 UTC Lol... Egypt is in a better position to solo now because you’re all being dumb in the west
05 Sep 20 UTC how does the west have anything to do with my position?
05 Sep 20 UTC My draw vote is up, Britain once you are satisfied you can vote draw
05 Sep 20 UTC None of them moved east to start forming a line. You have easy access to most of Ukraine if you want it, but that’s your call. In SoS, you will get a lot of points right now anyways
05 Sep 20 UTC Egypt only needs 18 more centers to solo!!!
05 Sep 20 UTC So draw.
05 Sep 20 UTC my vote is up. Britain, once you are ready you can vote draw
05 Sep 20 UTC gg everyone
05 Sep 20 UTC gg
05 Sep 20 UTC lol? I got in the draw
05 Sep 20 UTC Good game folks!
05 Sep 20 UTC Haha can't beleive after all that Russia and Turkey made the draw
